Neocon 2017: Residential trends in Corporate Design

Darren Kincaid - Sunday, June 11, 2017

Intexure visited Neocon this year with a project minded purpose as well as watching industry trends. One of the biggest is residential trends merging into corporate design to add softness and a more casual approach to the workplace. These residential trends manifest in material choices, with trendier colors and warmer woods also with residential trends in form especially mid-century modern inspired style. Mid-century modern inspired dining tables are showing up as conference configurations, as well as mid-century modern sideboards for storage. Residential trends and mid-century modern inspired soft seating are showing up in informal collaboration zones similar to living room configurations. We embrace this trend, if fact this is something Intexure has been doing for years. Our own live work studio now ten years old is just as fresh in this regard, with an Eames table and chairs serving the conference room and Saarinen chairs as soft seating. It’s a timeless approach and a great example of how blending work and living through architecture and interior design can lead to a happy and productive workplace – a place you actually want to spend time in. We’re all for that!
